The Comix Reader is a British comics newspaper inspired by the free spirit of 60's underground comix and early comics newspapers like Comic Cuts and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday. It presents a unique blend of established talent, new discoveries, outsider art and unsung heroes of the art form. It’s contributors are a rogues gallery of the UK’s funniest, edgiest and weirdest cartoonists.
The paper is sold at music festivals, comedy gigs, in pubs, bookshops, record shops, on the beach and on the street.
